Patriots' Rob Gronkowski contributes Thursday
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(10/17/14) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski didn't have a great game Thursday, but was still a big part of the team's offense.
Gronkowski finished with six receptions for 68 yards. He was targeted a team-high 10 times during the contest. Gronkowski saw a lot of time on the field, indicating that he's close to fully healed after his offseason issues. Backup tight end Tim Wright was not a factor in the game, leaving Gronk as the only threat at the position. Despite receiving a fair amount of targets, the team opted to go to other options in the red zone.
Gronkowski will take on the Bears Week 8.
Tom Brady: Rob Gronkowski is 'absolutely' back
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(10/14/14) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said tight end Rob Gronkowski is back to his old self following last year's torn ACL. "Oh yeah, he is back," Brady told ESPN.com. "Absolutely."|
Gronkowski has 13 catches for 194 yards over the past two games, and four touchdowns in six games this season.
"He's a great player and he's playing great," Brady said. "So it's great for a quarterback. I have a lot of confidence in him, I love playing with that guy. Great to be out there with him."
Patriots' Rob Gronkowski has TD called back Week 6 due to penalty
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(10/12/14) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski fell 6 yards shy of recording his second straight 100-yard game during a 37-22 win Week 6 at Buffalo. Gronkowski, who was targeted nine times, finished with seven catches for 94 yards.
Gronkowski should have had his fifth receiving touchdown Sunday, but he had an 18-yard touchdown catch called back in the fourth quarter due to an offensive holding penalty.
The seven catches were a season high for Gronkowski, who has totaled 13 catches for 194 yards in his last two games. The Patriots are back in action Thursday vs. N.Y. Jets.
Patriots injury report finally sans TE Rob Gronkowski
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(10/9/14) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has been removed from the injury report for the first time this season. He had been on the list since undergoing ACL surgery in January.
Gronkowski is coming off his finest game of 2014. He caught six passes for 100 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against Cincinnati. He had just 13 receptions for 147 yards in the previous four games combined.
Patriots finally unleash Rob Gronkowski
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(10/6/14) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski had been a useful Fantasy option through the first four weeks, but he was clearly limited while working his way back from offseason knee surgery. We got a glimpse of just what a full-strength Gronk can do Sunday, as he dominated in a 43-17 win over the Bengals.
Through the first four games, Gronkowski had been mostly limited to situational usage, playing just 50.7 percent of the team's total offensive snaps. That changed in a big way Sunday night, as he saw the field for 68 snaps, 79 percent of the team's plays. He had played just 140 total snaps entering Sunday.
Over the last few weeks Gronkowski and the team's coaches have talked about how close he was getting to full health, and it was good to see him finally unleashed. Even when limited, as he has been over the last two seasons, Gronkowski has still scored in eight of his last nine games.
If you remained patient with him, Gronkowski is about to reward you in a big way. Assuming he is ready to play his full role moving forward, Gronkowski should be considered a top-5 tight end the rest of the way.

|For the second year in a row Rob Gronkowski will enter the season with questions about his health. Last year, Gronkowski was coming off back surgery and problems with his forearm, and he missed the first six games of the 2013 season. He looked like the Gronkowski of old upon his return until a torn ACL in Week 14 ended his year, and now he's making yet another injury comeback. All signs point toward Gronkowski being ready for Week 1, but we won't know his status until training camp. Still, based on his talent level, Gronkowski is worth drafting as your No. 1 tight end. He had 39 catches for 592 yards and four touchdowns in seven games last year. If you project that over 16 games, Gronkowski would have finished with 89 catches for 1,353 yards and nine touchdowns. Those stats would have placed Gronkowski No. 2 at tight in Fantasy points behind Jimmy Graham in a standard league. Of course, Gronkowski has now played just 18 games over the past two seasons, so he's become an injury risk. But he's still worth the gamble with a pick in Round 4 at the latest because when he plays, he dominates.
